Pumpkin Spiced Green Smoothie

Over-indulged at the work Christmas party this weekend?  Try whipping up this pumpkin spice green smoothie for the ultimate hangover cure.  Watercress is full of antioxidants and cancer-fighting compounds as well as having more vitamin C than oranges, more folate than bananas and more calcium than milk.  Don’t fancy pumpkin spice?  Add it to your usual morning smoothie for a zingy peppery flavour and a multitude of health benefits.
